Rapid full scale model.
Can you make this?
We get a lot of stuff in the mail. Clay models, 3D printed parts, sometimes we get 6×9 photos to recreate. We find a way to make it into a digital model by digitally sculpting, 3D scanning, or drawing it.
Once it’s digital, we can scale it, modify it, or slice it up into parts we can machine.
Then it’s on to the manufacturing department, where the guys pick a method to cut it out. It gets assembled, armatured, and glued up according to however the customer needs it.
Sometimes customers want to coat their model with clay or plaster, adding fine detail for their own purposes like bronze statues.
In other cases we apply a resin coating to weatherproof or create a hard, smooth mold surface, and can be further finished with sandable primer, paint, and clear coat.
Every job is different, which is why we love this industry. If it’s big and needs to look good, we’re your guys!
We like to help people create things. We’re engineers without a leash.
If you’re not sure how something should be made or if we can do it, shoot us an email.
Objects ranging from an inch to 12 yardslong can be 3D scanned and scaled exactly to proportion.
These models can be manipulated digitally using free programs, or we can do it for you.
A red-hot thin wire to cut shapes with flat or tapered sides – commonly used for letters, columns, funnels, tapered pieces, or a 2-D pattern of any depth.
There is no limit to the size, but we recommend a minimum of a 1′ cube.
Materials are limited to EPS and XPS foam.
We have 3 machining centers, each specific to a certain type of project.
Our new robot cell is capable of a 20′ long x 10’w x 10’h envelope, with a separate 12′ diameter x 8′ tall rotary table envelope. It’s big, it’s fun to build things like this.
Materials in these cells are densities from hardwood or 60lb PU foam, down to 4lb PU, EPS, XPS, and any signboard in between.
